Special Triple Chocolate Truffle Cookies

Nor Mac


I call these cookies special for a reason. Using real chocolate and fine ingredients. It makes a big difference with flavor and texture. Semi sweet chocolate chips and white chocolate chips are added. If you feel like splurging and want to tame that chocolate craving. Indulge in these Special Chocolate truffle cookies. This is a recipe, I created by tweaking and changing up another recipe. They far surpass the original. They are a decadent treat. Great for a gift, special occasion, or any time. Enjoy!
